Almost forgot there, didn’t you? You’ve still got plenty of time – OK, maybe not plenty, but you’ve got some time – to whip up a DIY gift we know she’ll appreciate.

We get it; you’re busy. You work 12+ hours a day, you need to squeeze in a pilates class or two and then find time to whip up a few healthy meals for the week. But this is Mom we’re talking about here: the OG of best friends, the one who calls just to check in and make sure you had lunch, the lady who sends you care packages filled with spaghetti and lint rollers. So show Mom that she’s on your mind (because you’re always on hers) with a handcrafted goodie basket made just for her. Oh, and give her a call, will ya?

Mother's Day Gift Basket

Gifts for Mother Dearest:

You can always send your one and only mama a bouquet of flowers – you know she’d love ‘em.  But why not up the ante and curate a few additional surprises that will totally make her day?

The Body Shop British Rose Collection

Because deep down every mom is a sweet fleur (yeah, we went there), give her the gift of products made with hand-picked, air dried petals so she can smell just as beautiful as she looks!

Ralph Lauren Romance 4-PIece Set

If she prefers woodsy fragrances, this seductive, musky scent will remind her of what it was like to fall in love with Dad all over again. Not that we need to get into the nitty gritty details of all that.

Giorgio Armani Limited Edition Eye Set

Giorgio Armani definitely has Mom on the mind: their exclusive eye set covers every beauty-loving mom’s needs, from mascara to eye shadow. And we all know how much Mom loves vibrant-looking eyes.

Kiehl’s Kiss For A Cure Buttermilk Lip Treatment Duo

She stressed the importance of helping others right out of the womb, so saying that mom thinks giving back is essential would be an understatement. Treating Mom to a gift that she’ll love--and that helps countless other women is a do-good no-brainer.

This kit includes two hydrating shades of the Buttermilk Lip Treatment, one clear and one tinted, and 100% of the proceeds benefits Bright Pink for breast health and education programs.

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone Kit

Mom will love this kit that not only hydrates her skin, but also revives and brightens it too. It includes two anti-aging skin must-haves, the Age-Perfect Rosy Tone Moisturizer which gives skin an allover natural-looking rosy glow, and Visible Lift Radiance Booster which brightens, primes and provides 24hr moisture.
